1996 Chrysler Cirrus-Charge Light On After Driving 1/2 Mile Sign In

Hello - we are going broke trying to get this car on the road for our grandson............it is his first car, and here is the problem.......

1996 Chrysler Cirrus - 2.5 Liter V6

Charge light comes on after driving approximately 1/2 mile.

Light does not come on while idling at all, but only after driving for 1/2 mile or so.

My husband has replaced alternator and power train control module......................

If anyone can offer any help, we would be most appreciative........trying to help out our grandson with a first car, but running out of money now..........about to give up.

Have you tested the output of the charging system during the period that the light is on?

If not you need to do that first.

How do you check the output of the charging system?

With a digital voltmeter across the battery with the engine idling and no accessories on, especially lights and A/C. That has to be done while the light is on.
